No Dentistry Update

Well as I mentioned in an edit Monday I didn't have to go to the dentist. Seeing as I woke up at five AM feeling sick and had trouble getting back to sleep again, and was incredibly tired for the day, I didn't mind so much. A rest day suited me just fine. I didn't even get any writing done, but I did spend a few hours correctly formatting my book, which went quite well overall and was definitely worth it.

The only problem with a lack of dentistry? Having to find something else to write about. Which is pretty much what I'm doing. There are only so many times I can tell you to BUY MY BOOK before one of us gets tired of doing it. While I think you're more likely to get bored of it first (by the way a massive thank you to anyone who HAS bought it) it doesn't take up much room.

Well other than that I don't really have much...hmmmmm....I'll tell you a little about my work on Sunday I guess actually. I did go to work last Sunday. Something that happened was that I told my boss about my book release and we had a bit of a chat about it. He guessed that someone died in every story (not EVERY story) and said it was unsurprising how much people die. He doesn't have much faith in my morality you see, and seems to think I want a lot of people around me dead and have a very dark and twisted mind.

He's right of course! We actually have a ceremonial ax in the shop and as much as I want it, I can't afford it. But he also won't let me play with it. Douche. I just want to play with an ax. It's not even sharp! It's only ceremonial it's not like I'll actually do any real damage with it...Ahhh, working life.

Oh he also didn't see the logic when I said he should pay me (remember I'm a volunteer) because everyone pays for their mistakes (I had just made a minor mistake and he said "What are we going to do with you?" and I said "Pay me?" and I felt he should pay for mine, with money. I personally thought it was a very logical argument, but he didn't.

Though I do think that would make a good advertising campaign: "Buy my book, or I'll show you what I can do with a blunt ax...you'll wish it was sharp."

  1. That's a shame about the dentist thing Mark although obviously since he found your teeth so good it's not too much of a problem. Finding something to write about is sometimes hard for me as well so I can definitely relate to this haha.

  6. Yeah, it's difficult for me to write a story where someone doesn't die. Not that I'm deranged, but I find that death can evoke the most emotion from a reader.

    H'anyway, I'm almost done with the book. I'm about 70% of the way through. It's brilliant! I especially liked the Conversations With God one. You're dialogue was great. Also, thanks for the shoutout int he Story Behind The Story section!

  7. I BOUGHT YOUR BOOK.. So, you should be a tiny bit richer at this moment. I will read it later though, because I just ate a meat loaf and I need a nap.

  8. You and my son would certainly share similar thoughts re the axe. He came home the other day with a huge keyblade (Kingdom Hearts) and has his eye on other similar items
